      Not my favourite yoghurt

      The reason I started trying Muller Light yoghurts is that I follow the Slimming World diet plan, and these yoghurts are a 'free' food, meaning you can eat as many as you want (obviously within reason and only to satisfy a genuine hunger!)

      The yoghurts come in many flavours but strawberry were one of the first I tried as I usually really like strawberry flavour things.

      The yoghurts retail at 68p each and are sold in all the main supermarkets. I find the price a little high; there tends to be offers, usually something like 10 for £5 but I don't usually want 10!

      Occasionally there's a really good offer like 10 for £3 or 6 for £2 which is when I might get them, the use-by date tends to be a few weeks away so even though I don't want 10 they do last!

      Most Muller Lights, the strawberry one included, contain 99 calories and are fat free. This is pretty good, especially when the pot is fairly wide and you get quite a lot of yogurt in there.

      For me I find the consistency slightly on the runny side, especially now there are quite a lot of low fat/fat free yoghurts out there that are thicker and creamier. The Muller Lights are still a bit creamy, but definitely less so that other yoghurts I prefer.

      The strawberry yoghurt is pale pink in colour with the occasional piece of strawberry in it. The taste of it is pleasant, and easily identifiable as strawberry, but slightly too sweet for me.

      This said, I'll eat them occasionally, but I usually go for flavours like toffee as it doesn't feel too sweet as obviously toffee itself is very sweet.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Worth a try if you see them on offer

      These Mullerlight yoghurts are currently on offer at Morrisons costing £2 for 10 yoghurts. The mathematicians amongst us will be able to tell you that's 20p per yoghurt, which is pretty cheap by today's standards. I find yoghurts very expensive for what they are, and at full price pushing 60p per yoghurt they are something I only ever buy when I see them on offer, which this brand often is in most of the main supermarkets.

      The yoghurts are a decent size weighing in at 175g, and the obvious benefit is that they only contain 90 calories per pot. They are fat free, but contain added sugar and sweetener, which is something I think is reflected in the taste. There are around 12g of sugar in each pot, and we are also told the yoghurt contains a source of phenylalanine, whatever this is. I don't notice any bits of real strawberries in the pot, unless these have been blended in, although according to the ingredients listing each pot only contains 10% strawberries.

      We all know how strawberry yoghurt should taste. It should be thick and taste vaguely like strawberries. This yoghurt is a little on the thin side, but not thin enough to put me off buying it again. I tend to have yoghurt with some fruit chopped up in it, to try and get my five a day without really noticing, and these yoghurts are perfect for that.

      The smell of the strawberries hits you as soon as you take the lid off this yoghurt, and it looks a nice colour pink. The yoghurt is reasonably thick, although as thick as you'd expect it to be for 90 calories per pot. The yoghurt does taste of strawberries and there's no doubting what flavour it is, but the only downside is that I find these yoghurts far too sweet. The fact they've added sugars and sweeteners to make up for the lack of fat really does affect the taste, and I find these a bit on the sweet side.

      The consistency of this yoghurt is also quite boring, as they don't contain any bits of real fruit or anything, it does feel like it's going on forever and although it's nice and smooth it gets a bit boring after a while. That said, I usually add my own fruit which livens these yoghurts up.

      Still, at 90 calories per pot, they're the dieter's friend! And if they're on offer costing 20p each again, I'll definitely be stocking up!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A win-win situation of health benefits and taste; just let down by the rather steep price.

      Muller is my favourite brand of yogurt. They always seem to evoke that bit of quality with their products. I'm not particularly someone who always makes a beeline for the healthy or low-cal option when shopping, but as you can never be too careful with fat and sugar, I thought that I would give Muller Light Strawberry a go. And afterwards I was rather glad I did.

      They are made by Muller at their large factory in Market Drayton, Shropshire where they produce 80,000 pots of Muller Light every hour, 24 hours a day. They are quite a green company who pride themselves on the fact that they source over 90% of their milk within a 30 mile radius of the factory, thus keeping carbon emissions to a minimum and supporting local farmers. This is another reason why I favour Muller over other brands.

      The yogurt comes in a plastic pot with a foil lid. The lid is fairly easy to peel away, but be careful because sometimes it does rip and then it can get a little messy to completely peel away. Both the lid and the plastic pot are recyclable too, so they are good for the environmentally conscious.

      The yogurt itself is quite thick and creamy and has a natural pink colour. Many reduced fat alternatives I've tried in the past have been watery and tasteless, but this one is surprisingly pleasant. It's got a genuine sweet strawberry flavour and there are even pieces of real strawberry littering the yogurt, which I really like. A quick glance at the ingredients shows that it does contain 10% real fruit.

      As this is a snack aimed at the health conscious I had better explain some of the nutritional information to let you know exactly what you're getting. Each 190g pot contains the following:

      Energy: 414kJ (97kcal)
      Protein: 7.8g
      Carbohydrate: 15.0g
      Of which sugars: 13.7g
      Natural sugars: 9.3g
      Fat: 0.2g
      Of which saturates: 0.2g
      Fibre: 0.4g
      Sodium: 0.2g
      Calcium: 251mg

      As you can see this is a virtually fat free snack, very low in calories and rich in calcium; providing you with 31% of the recommended daily amount. It does not contain any artificial colours or preservatives. But, for those concerned, it does contain milk, aspartame, gelatine and a source of phenylalanine.

      The yogurt comes in a 190g pot which I suppose is an adequate size portion. For me, it never quite feels enough, but it certainly fills a little hole. It's great at any time of day. I've eaten one at breakfast, lunch and dinner. I even have them as a snack mid-morning or afternoon.

      There are loads of other flavours in the range, so if strawberry doesn't tickle your fancy then maybe one of the others will. I will be reviewing some of these in due course.

      Muller Light yogurts can be purchased individually or in packs of six. The normal retail price for an individual pot is just over 50p which I think is very expensive. I usually only purchase them when they are on special offer. For example they have recently been sold in Sainsbury's at 4 for £1 which is much more reasonable. Often the six packs can be on offer at 2 packs for £5 which is about 42p each which is still expensive.

      They are widely available in just about every supermarket; large or small. Just head for the fridge section.

      Because of the health benefits and great taste you can't really go wrong with this yogurt. It's a thick, creamy and delicious tasting strawberry flavoured yogurt that is fat free and low in calories. It's a win-win situation of health benefits and taste; just let down by the rather steep price.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Best variety I've tried yet

        I'm not a huge yoghurt person and when I do have yoghurt, I like have ones which have a bit of substance in them. However, my mum had bought some multipacks at Tesco. I had tried two others recently and not been impressed, the Toffee particularly being a letdown, the Vanilla a bit better but hardly outstanding so wasn't particularly looking for more. However, this week she got some different multipacks containing cherry, strawberry and raspberry.

        Strawberry tends to be the best of many flavours in desert ranges so I thought it might be a bit better. I don't know if it is because it was in a multi-pack or not, but it looks slightly different from the picture. The foil lid is white with strawberries on it and the pot has big 'health stats' on the side: fat free, 97 calories, high in calcium so they'd be good for kids.

        To my surprise, I found that this actually contained bits of fruit and there was actually a generous amount of strawberry pieces which meant that it meant it felt more like a realy yoghurt rather than a liquidy more yoghurt drink style product. The pots are big at 190g so you get a fair portion and the yoghurt is a lovely pink and tastes relatively creamy for a low fat item.

        Best so far...

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        a great lower fat alternative to full fat yogurt which retains the flavour but watch out for sugar!

        Muller yogurts are an incredibly well known brand of yogurts whose popularity stretches across countries. They have a wide range of dairy products and constantly seem to be endeavoring to widen there target market by including a series of low fat yogurts. The Muller light range is a great example of this. There are a wide variety of flavours, such as strawberry or cherry and all have a great taste. price wise, they can be more expensive compared to own brand products but I often find that they are on offer at the supermarket such as three for one pound, and these kind of offers make the yogurts good value, given the size of them. The yogurts are undoubtedly healthier than most, and contain 31% of your recommended daily intake of calcium. However, despite the low fat qualities, the product contains sugars and sweeteners to compensate, and these ingredients have often been questioned by health experts.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        another good product from Muller

        Muller's 'light' yoghurt's have been around for a long time now and I've been eating them regularly for at least 5, perhaps 6 years, this is mainly because they are relatively healthy and quite filling too.
        Their range has grown quite a lot in the last few years from which were mainly traditional fruit based yoghurts; Cherry, Blueberry, Banana, Apricot, Raspberry and Cranberry, Peach and Pineapple, Mandarin (all I can think of at this precise moment), to more exotic one like chocolate (in many different variations like vanilla with chocolate shavings!), dessert inspired ones like apple crumbles, toffee, and many I haven't yet tried or probably even heard of. They come in plastic pots which are in a quite distinct shape (wider than most yoghurts) and are pleasant to look at so I'm sure you would have noticed them in the supermarket.

        One negative with the product is the high selling price, and I will only get them in the better value 6 packs (just under 3 quid), or if they are on a special offer.
        Tesco's is currently selling them for 5 for a quid which as they are usually over 50p is a great deal and I stocked up (20p a pot in fact!).

        The product itself is very tasty and quite creamy with lots of lumps of strawberries in it (like the cherry; and pineapple ones - so not for you if you like only smooth yoghurts).
        It has only 97 calories in it, hardly any fat (0.1g) it does have a bit of sugar in it but is surely a result of all the strawberries in it (ten percent). The pot contains thirty one percent of the RDA (recommended daily allowance or something like that) for Calcuim.
        At 190g they are pretty big and filling. I recently bought some Tesco home brand low fat yoghurts and they had more calories, more sugar and more fat despite being only 125g per pot (and tasted a bit like angel delight for some reason), but they did cost something like 8p a pot so you have to decide what's more important to you personally.

        I love Muller's and the strawberry may not be one of my favorites, it is still always an enjoyable healthy treat. A great treat if you are on a diet or just want a snack.

        If you have any other questions feel free to message me

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Impressive strawberry flavour from the Muller Light range

        As part of a great offer where you get 5 165g pots of Muller Light Yoghurt for £1, I picked up a couple of these as well as some Vanilla & Chocolate ones the other day at Tesco. I really like these yoghurts, but at the usual price of 53p, I find them too expensive.

        I was impressed by the Vanilla & Choc flavour, finding the choc sprinkles a surprisingly nice addition that I hadn't been sure about, whereas strawberry flavoured yoghurt is a rather common occurrence and one that seems to be quite hard to mess up.

        Indeed, Muller do manage to nail this one on the head. To be honest, the taste isn't greatly different to the majority of strawberry flavoured yoghurts that I have tasted, although it must be said that, as a general rule, Muller do manage to give slightly better flavours and creamier yoghurts.

        The packaging isn't the greatest, I find. The round pot has a foil lid which feels like it could burst at any moment. You do have to be a bit careful when opening it to make sure you don't spatter everywhere. Inside, the yoghurt immediately has that rich, pink colour to it. There aren't really any 'bits' of strawberry in it, although it tastes very much like real strawberries have been used. You get a firm strawberry taste to it without it being over the top or too sickly, and there are no artificial colours or flavours used.

        It is a very good yoghurt, and what I like about Muller Light is the fact that they uphold that 'Light' tag they give them. There are 86 calories to a pot, but the pot is 165g which is quite large for a single serving yog pot - you may even want to divide it in two and share. You also get 26% of the RDA for calcium, and it's fat free. This doesn't sacrifice on the creaminess though, somehow, maintaining the texture and feel in the mouth, as well as the creamy taste to accompany the strawberry. The surprising thing is that they manage to give a creamy feel and appearance to it, but there's no cream!

        Overall, then, a highly recommended yoghurt. The truth of the matter is that strawberry yoghurts tend to be rather good irrelevant of the brand - it seems the most common and popular of yoghurt flavours, and you'd have to go some way to making a bad one. Some of the other flavours that the Muller Light range do are quite interesting, and while this is quite a common flavour, they still do it well, giving you a full and tasty yoghurt. Normally, at 53p a pot, I wouldn't glance twice, but at the offer of 5 for £1, it was well worth it. Recommended.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          De-light-ful

          When yoghurt kings Muller created their "Light" brand, sold on the principle of being low fat one it had me interested immediately. After the success of the Muller corner yoghurt and the brilliant strawberry flavour I became a bit of a Muller addict and have been completely in love with the yoghurt for years. The fat free "Muller" Light is as amazing as they blend not only the brilliant taste of Muller yoghurt but they are also good for those of us trying to keep the pounds of after Christmas. The yoghurt comes in a 190g pot which looks massive for a yoghurt, in fact all Muller light pots are 190g which make them a filling snack, though the reason to have a strawberry one ahead of the other flavours in the brand (Cherry, Vanilla, Raspberry and Cranberry) is obvious built on the fact that strawberry's are just one of the very best fruit flavours out there.

          After finally getting the foil lid off (it ripped, as they always seem to) it revealed the gorgeous colour of the yoghurt, a creamy pink colour that's natural (the yoghurt contains no artificial colours). Though the yoghurt looks a bit "lumpy" that's down to the fact that the yoghurt has solid bits of strawberry inside causing it to look a little less than perfectly smooth. Of course it's never going to be the way the product looks that matters but the actual taste of it and it's the taste that will see you coming back for more down the line. The yoghurt has a wonderfully smooth and some what fresh strawberry flavour with a slightly added sweetness that makes it even morish. The yoghurt isn't as creamy as it looks (in fact the Cherry version seems much thicker and creamier than this flavour) but it's still a better quality yoghurt than most of it's rivals. Although it's not creamy it is incredibly smooth and easy to eat as well as being incredibly filling (an advantage of it being such a large pot) which makes it such a great snack.

          Nutritional Information (per 100g)
          218KJ Energy (51Kcal)
          4.1g Protein
          7.9g Carbohydrate (of which 7.2g are from Sugars, and of those 4.9g are from naturally occuring sugars from fruit and milk)
          0.1g Fat (0.1g of which are Saturated fat)
          0.2g Fibre
          0.1g Sodium
          132mg Calcium

          The yoghurt contains-Milk, Aspartame, Gelatine and a source of Phenylalanine as well as Strawberries (yes it seems obvious but I have an ex who's allergic to Strawberries)

          Overall the yoghurt is purely brilliant though not quite as nice as the cherry one it is equally as filling. The price of around 36p a yoghurt can seem rather pricey but it is only the same sort of price as a packet of crisps and can be bought in packets of 6 yoghurt's for £2 which is just brilliant value for money for 6 filling snacks that will quench any hunger. The only problems people will have are possibly an allergic one or a dietary one (Gelatine rules out vegetarians from enjoying it) other wise it's completely and utterly wonderful.

            One of my favourite flavours in this range but not a very 'natural' snack

            Twice a week at work, I try and have a break from my cup-of-soup lunch and instead treat myself to a fruit salad and yoghurt.
            Today the yoghurt that arrived with my fruit salad was Muller light Strawberry flavour and Ive just devoured the pot.
            It would seem that the less sweet treats you eat the yummier the healthy snacks become!

            On tearing back the foil lid (I am not a lid licker by the way so carefully scraped the lid with my plastic spoon) I was hit by a strawberry smell and a thick pale pink yoghurt full of bits. This yoghurt has generous pieces of real strawberry which personally I like but I know can be off putting to alot of people.

            The taste test faired well. Thick and tasting very much of strawberries the only down side being a slight aftertaste of sweetners. I find this of all the Muller Light range. I must also mention that there is a very very slight fizz when eating this, its the best way that I can describe it and I wonder if anyone else notices this?

            All in all its a pleasant tasting fat free treat - In fact if I wasnt at work I may have been tempted to use my finger to lick out the rest!

            This fat free yoghurt contains 102 calories. It is rich in calcium and contains no artificial colour or preservatives. They retail on their own at about 54p for 200g or can be cheaper if purchased in a multipack.

            Ingredients: Yoghurt, strawberries (10%), water, fructose, modified maize starch, gelatine, flavourings, beetroot red colourings, carmines, acidity regulator, sodium citrates, citric acid, aspartame sweetner.
            It contains milk and a source of phenylalene.

            In fact reading that back I am suprised that it contains only 10% strawberries and my healthy snack doesnt seem very healthy or natural anymore!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Whether you buy in quantity or just as a treat, a great product

              As yogurt is one of the best bang for your buck yogurts, there is for around £1 you get enough yogurt to constitute a snack but not so much that you feel ill.

              Muller yogurts are very good and so very successful but this is probably the bulk of their profits, a large container of strawberry yogurt for one you can't go wrong with strawberry and a second point is that the yogurt is so good it really does justify the large pot.

              The one downside is that the yogurt has a few bits of strawberry in it which while is appealing to some to others is a put off, i personally prefer bits to no bits as it seems to give more strawberry taste and just feels better in my opinion.

              Although due to the size, these yogurts only tend to get bought in 1s, 2s or 3s, they aren't going to make it through the night let alone the week, so make sure that you stock up next time you go to the supermarket.

              Overall compared to some other yogurts such as Ski, i would say that this yogurt comes out on top in both taste and size of pot.

              Muller Light Strawberry Yogurt

              Yesterday I reviewed the Smooth Raspberry & Cranberry flavour from the Muller Light 6 pack. Today it's the turn of the strawberry flavour.


              Packaging:

              There are 6 pots of Muller Light Yogurt in this "collection". They are:-

              + 2 x Strawberry
              + 2 x Cherry
              + 2 x Smooth Raspberry & Cranberry.

              The six pots are held in place with a piece of sturdyish cardboard which is then covered a the usual type of plastic bag which Muller use for of their 6 packs. This one is predominantly white in colour with pictures of strawberries, cherries, raspberries & cranberries. The back of the pack lists the ingredients & nutritional information for each of the three flavours of yoghurt as well as Muller's address & website:- www.muller.co.uk


              The ingredients for this flavour are: Yogurt, Strawberries (10%), Water, Fructose, Modified Maize Starch, Gelatine, Flavourings, Colour: Beetroot Red, Carmines, Acidity Regulators: Sodium Citrates, Citric Acid, Sweetners: Aspartame


              Nutritional Information per 100g

              Energy kJ: 215kJ
              kcal: 51kcal
              Protein: 4.1g
              Carbohydrate: 7.7g
              of which total sugars: 7.0g
              sugars naturally from milk: 4.7g
              Fat: 0.1g
              (of which saturates): 0.1g
              Fibre: 0.2g
              Sodium: 0.1g
              Calcium: 127mg

              Allergy information: contains milk. contains a source of phenylalanine.
              These desserts contain no artificial colours or preservatives.


              The Yogurt:

              The yogurt comes in a plastic white & red pot. The pot is covered with the usual foil lid with a picture of some strawberries on it. The pot tells us that it weighs 200g that there are 102 calories per pot, that it's fat free & that each pot will provide you with 31% of your Recommended Daily Amount of calcium. On opening the pot I can see that the yogurt is sort of an pinkish sort of colour colour with a smooth appearance. There are 3 or 4 bits of strawberries laying just below the surfaxe & you can see small bits of them just about level with the surface of the yogurt.


              Taste:

              This yogurt has a slightly thicker consistency than the Raspberry & Cranberry flavour which I reviewed yesterday. It tastes creamy, fruity, fresh and doesn't have the edge to it that the Raspberry & Cranberry flavour does. The strawberry pieces are solid without being hard & are of a size so that you know that they are there without being too large. Oddly enough they don't have any sort of particular flavour to them which is a little strange as strawberries are not that tasteless as a fruit. Perhaps they're just included to provide some sort of contrast with the yogurt?


              Price:

              At time of writing the 6 pack is on offer in Morrison's for £1.40


              Opinion:

              If you're the sort of person who doesn't like bits in their yogurt then this flavour isn't for you. Whilst it's not jam packed with bits of strawberry there's enough pieces in there to bother you if you don't like that sort of thing. As well as being virtually fat product & providing you with 31% of your RDA of calcium this tastes slightly sweeter than the Raspberry & Cranberry flavour which is a little surprising when you realise that they both have exactly the same percentage of sugar. The reason that the Raspberry & Cranberry tastes less sweet, is, I feel, down to the presence of the Cranberries which add a slight edge to the yogurt. Here, of course, there's are no cranberries to create the same sort of edge. For some reason this yogurt also feels slightly more filling than the Raspberry & Cranberry flavour.

              Content wise this yogurt contains both aspartame & gelatine, both of which some people have issues / concerns over. Tastewise it's an improvement on the Raspberry & Cranberry flavour due to the fact that it has no "edge". It feels slightly smoother, slightly creamier & has a slight thicker consistency &, overall, leaves a more pleasant aftertaste in the mouth.

                i woundn't buy again

                This is not the yoghurt for me. One bite and I can taste the difference from the usual yoghurts that I eat. It says it is a light yoghurt, however it does not taste like so.

                The yoghurts are meant to be strawberry flavoured but you just really can't taste the strawberries. It feels like they used one strawberry to make a tub of Muller light strawberry yoghurt. And it was not a big one either. The flavour is so bland I do not think id be able to finish another one.

                Also the yoghurt itself is very sweet for my liking. There are now beneficial ingredients that help your digestive system that are in such yoghurts such as Donome Activia.

                The best part of fruit yoghurts is having small yet tiny tasteful bits of fruit in them to add to the flavour of the yoghurt but Muller light does not have this. It's a major letdown and a major selling point for me.

                I highly recommend you stay away from this product, as there are better ones out there.

                  Disadvantages

                  /

                  Yoghurt is the perfect food for all times of the day. Whether its an accompaniment to your bowl of cereal or toast at breakfast, a mid morning treat, or a pudding for after a meal, it really is very versatile. One of my favourite brands of yoghurt are Muller and I am particularly fond of the Muller Light variety.

                  Muller Lights can be found in all Supermarkets including Asda and Tesco. They are often found in little shops such as Superdrug and Boots too as well as hospital and airport canteens and sometimes little newsagents or petrol stations. They can always be found in the fridges which is the perfect and really the only place for them to be stored.

                  One flavour in the range is the strawberry. The yoghurt comes in a 200g pot. Each pot costs 54p however there is currently an offer on where you can get 4 yoghurts for £2. This is only a saving of 16p but if you are being careful with your money then its definitely worth taking advantage of.

                  The pot is made of plastic with a foil lid. It is mainly white in colour however around the edges of the pot there is a lovely dark pinkish red colour theme with all the nutritional information and product information on it too. The lid Is like I said made of foil and is mainly white in colour. However to make it a bit more colourful and appealing there is some delicious and very juicy looking pictures of strawberries. They look big, plump and very fresh which was very tempting and makes it seem very healthy indeed. It does look delicious and very fresh and I couldn't wait to dig in.

                  Opening the lid is easy but I was sprayed slightly with yoghurt. There was only a little on the lid which was easily enough scraped into the pot. The yoghurt looked fairly thick which was good as often the light yoghurts are poor and runny. However there did appear to be a slight watery layer on the top of the yoghurt which was a bit off putting! The yoghurt was a nice pink colour which looked slightly lighter than the cherry version. Through the yoghurt there were visible little pieces of dark red strawberry. This was a bit annoying for me as I'm not keen on bitty yoghurts. I much prefer the smooth version!

                  After a little mix the yoghurt did thicken up quite a lot more and looked like a lovely texture. Luckily the water layer on top disappeared which was a bit more appealing and made me less doubtful! Spooning some up the first thing I detected was the sweet taste. It actually tasted very like strawberry which I found quite surprising, but good surprising. Its not often you get a real strawberry flavour yoghurt. I rememeber trying this before and it wasn't nearly as fruity. I think its improved since last time! It wasn't too strong though and remained fairly subtle which for me is good. It was actually very creamy too which surprised me despite the appearance. Although it was creamy though, the main thing I could taste was a distinct sweetness.

                  Nutrition wise these are really great and a 200g pot contains a mere 100 calories. This is absolutely amazing considering some 125g pots contain the same if not more! It has an almost non existent fat content too which is just splendid.

                  These yoghurts go great on cereal or fruit and are even nicer when sprinkled with some crushed bran flakes or some meringue! It is worth noting that you can get smaller 125g pots which come in multi packs and the strawberry flavour is smooth. I prefer this myself. These contain around 60 calories.

                  Strawberry Goodness

                  I had another Muller Light during my lunch break today, I had bought a pack of 8 of the Peach & Strawberry 125g pots a few days ago from Netto for 99p and I am finding they are very handy to carry into work too and a healthy option to snack on..

                  The yogurt comes in a small rounded pack with a some kind of tin foil on the top that is easy to peel off and if you do not finish the pot (which I have found to be the case with my little gal), you can put the foil back on and keep in the fridge for later..

                  The yogurt is light pink in colour and is a smooth creamy texture. The taste and scent of the strawberries is noticeable. Strawberry is my daughter's favourite flavour so she really likes this one..

                  I have had it for breakfast with some fruit, as a mid-morning, lunch or mid-afternoon snack, even better when eating it with strawberries but it is fine on its own too. It tastes fruity, delicious and refreshing.

                  The small Strawberry pack indicates the following about Muller Light Strawberry:

                  Fat Free
                  62 Calories Per Pot (125g)
                  19% Calcium RDA
                  No Artificial Colourings or Preservatives

                  Nutritional Information; Typical values Per 100G:

                  Energy 213KJ(50 KCal)
                  Protein 4.1g
                  Carbohydrates 7.4g
                  of which total sugars 6.9g ( a bit much in my opinion)
                  sugars naturally from fruit & milk 4.8g
                  Fat 01g (GREAT!)
                  of which saturates 0.1g
                  Fibre 0.2g
                  Sodium 0.1g
                  Calcium 127mg

                  As you can see from the info on the pot, not bad at all except for the sugar which I think could really be less in a 125g portion..

                  I'd recommend as a snack, dessert or treat or something to have along with your fruit or as part of a meal..

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Low fat yoghurt

                  I first came across Muller light yoghurts when I joined slimming world a year ago. I am not going to tell you about the slimming world programme her (I have reviewed it if you are interested) however suffice it to say that Muller light yoghurts are a so-called free food. I decided to buy a few pots of Muller light strawberry yoghurt as they are at present on offer in Asda for just 20p per pot.

                  Muller light yoghurts come in a very generous 200-gram plastic tub. Opening the lid can be a bit tricky as tend to get spurted with yoghurt! The yoghurt itself looks thick and is a good strawberry colour, as you would hope. There are lumps of strawberry visible too so a good start!

                  The most important taste test confirms that this yoghurt is very thick and creamy. There are lots of chunks of strawberry too. The taste is not too sweet and overall quite pleasant. I can taste the strawberries although they are nowhere near as sweet and delicious as fresh fruit would be. A pot of this certainly fills me up and gives me just 102 calories and virtually no fat.

                  However there is a huge downside for me, and that is that all Muller light yoghurts contain the artificially sweetener aspartame. Aspartame has been linked with brain and stomach cancers and is certainly not something I wish to eat or allow my children to eat. The other downside is that several minutes after eating a pot of this yoghurt I noticed a horrible aftertaste. I can only think it's that artificial sweetener! In future I will be eating fresh fruit or a piece of homemade cake if I need a sweet treat! Both are much better for you! Muller light yoghurt usually sells for 54p per pot and are widely available. They are regularly on offer too.
